[P@D] DJT & ExplodingPonyToast – Sugar Shy | Indie Dance

[inb4 I get flak for putting earlier songs on hold to talk about this]

It’s that time again. The upcoming Ponies At Dawn album, Amity, is due to be released next Friday 13th January. And so we’re having some special pre-releases on Cider Party to give you an idea of some of the stuff on the album. This installment is a much more collaborative work – every track on Amity is either a collaboration or a remix (hence the name) – and to show that we’ve got DJT and EPT’s track Sugar Shy. While none of us can agree on the genre, we agree that it’s a great track, and the art is fitting and super cute.

We’ll have more info on pre-ordering the album and the livestream party in a couple of days. Keep an eye out for that!


Totalspark & Kawaii Dash – Ramune | Nu Disco / House

NB: This was originally posted on Equestria Daily on 1 January 2017.

Totalspark and Kawaii Dash combine here to bring a weeb-y, whomp-y combination of neat sounds that help form a pretty cool future bass track. As is often the case with Totalspark tracks the chords are pretty interesting, whilst the Kawaii Dash influence is obvious in the way they whomp in with flair. Definitely worth checking out if you want some light and fluffy future!


[P@D] Homage McGee – Disco Girl (ft. SlightlyAmiss, ForeverFreest & SaxBrony) | Disco

YES! THIS GETS A YES FROM ME. One of the most unique tracks I’ve ever heard from a Ponies At Dawn album (this being from Voyager, not the upcoming Amity btw). It’s also great at bringing a load of different talents together – combining Amiss’ singing, Freest’s rapping, and a solo from SaxBrony, all brought together by Homage’s funky fresh production to create one of my favourites from Voyager, and from the entire P@D catalogue thus far.


Direct Current – {RD/TS} (NeverLastStanding Remix) | Indie Dance

What happens when a SGaP track, already full of emotion and depth, inspires a musician to make a track as a heartfelt tribute to that musical style, in turn inspiring another musician to make a remix of that tribute track, full of underlying feelings too? This right here is the result, and I can safely say that the magic has been tripled! Perfectly displaying one of our powers that is simply to cause others to move, this accumulation of experiences and reflection of emotions gives a wonderful new take to Direct Current’s {RD-TS}, now re-imagined in NeverLastStanding’s unique sensitivity and sound. Experience those pony vocal chops and Direct Current’s vocals along bright melodies and powerful beats in this remix that will shine eternal!
